So my questions is this; What is the best way to engage into fruitful conversations with Christians/Local Church followers, using the Word to debunk this doctrine, to help them out of this system of error?

Any thoughts or comments welcome :-)
First, the following questions need to be answered by those who believe that God is limited to the “ministry of Witness Lee”, or that is, the Creator is bound by His creation and cannot function without the “wisdom” of one of the grains of sand of the sea. I think the creator of the universe might be able to find his way back AND build his church without input from Witness Lee, but that’s just me.

Job 38:4-7(Nell-IV)
4 “Where was Witness Lee when God laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
5 Did Witness Lee mark off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Did Witness Lee stretch a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set,
or did Witness Lee lay its cornerstone—
7 while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?

Did the “ministry of Witness Lee” originate solely in the mind of Witness Lee, or did God have anything to do with it...anything...? Is the church “built” to the specifications of Witness Lee? No? Yes? Do we limit the truth of God to the reach, the massive expanse, of the mind of Witness Lee? What does Witness Lee have that he did not receive? Is Witness Lee the potter or the clay?

Witness Lee is a man with an interpretation of the Bible, like every other Christian man or woman. Some interpretations are more educated than others; some may be more enlightened than others; some may even be anointed by the Holy Spirit than others.

Interpretations that others believe to be so powerful as to limit the fulfillment of God’s promises to return one day, and to build his church...Hummm...I dunno...
